Tomo Takeuchi’s Welcome to the Ballroom manga did not return from hiatus as planned in the April 2018 issue of Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Magazine. The magazine stated that Takeuchi’s health deteriorated while drawing the new chapter, and she could not make it in time for the magazine issue.
The magazine further noted that Takeuchi is aiming to resume the manga in the magazine’s next issue in April 2018.
The manga’s two-month hiatus started in December 2017, and it did not appear in the February 2018 and March 2018 issues. The manga’s chapter that debuted in October 2017 had fewer pages due to Takeuchi’s health.
Takeuchi began the series in Monthly Shonen Magazine in 2011, and Kodansha published the ninth compiled volume in June 2017. Kodansha Comics published the manga’s ninth volume in North America on January 30, 2018.
